In support of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Promoting Interoperability Incentive Program (Meaningful Use), the Mississippi State Department of Health supports electronic submission of the following public health data.
Under Modified Stage 2 Rules, Stage 1 and 2 registrations have been merged into one Registration of Intent.
|Eligible Professional (EP) *||Eligible Hospital (EH) and Critical Access Hospital (CAH) *|
|Electronic Lab Reporting||N/A||Yes|
|Immunization Information Reporting||Yes||Yes|
|Syndromic Surveillance Reporting||Yes||Yes|
|Clinical Data Registry||No||No|
|Electronic Case Reporting||No||No|
|Public Health Registries (Cancer Registry Reporting)||Yes||No|
Step 1 of the Promoting Interoperability (Meaningful Use) onboarding process for all objectives is to register your intent to submit electronic data to public health. A single registration may be used to register an eligible hospital, an eligible professional or clinic, or multiple clinics for one or more of the public health objectives.
NOTE: MSDH will generate an organizational letter for EHs, CAHs, or EPs once the Registration of Intent is completed. This letter can be used for all future stages. For future stages, it must be accompanied with an email statement from MSDH verifying the EH, CAH, or EP is still actively engaged. If the EH, CAH, or EP changes status (e.g. from On-Boarding to Production), a new letter must be created by MSDH. Changes in ownership will also require a new letter. Changes in EHRs will require re-Registration of Intent but not a new letter.
If registering for multiple clinics on one registration, use the same Parent Organization for each clinic / facility. Please ensure accuracy in that field as MSDH will generate a report based on Parent Organization to be attached to your letter.
Once you have submitted your registration, staff from the program areas for each of the objectives you selected will review your submission. Each program area will acknowledge the receipt of the registration separately and you’ll receive separate letters to be used in your attestation for each program area.
The Mississippi State Department of Health does not grant exclusions. It is up to the healthcare provider to determine if they can claim an applicable exclusion.
